How Much?

The last time I opened up a bag of sugar, I decided to keep track of it. I just can't believe how much these hummingbirds are eating. Or how many birds we have! There are so many of them. Over 20 that I know of.

We went through a 5lb bag of sugar in less than 2 weeks. Yes, that's how often I have to fill the hummingbird feeders. I'm not sure if this is normal or not. But it's been a lot. Some days, I fill up both of my feeders. Yes, 2 feeders a day!

I recently bought 10lbs of sugar. We don't even use sugar in our house. But for the hummingbirds, we do. But it's nice to get up in the morning and see all the hummingbirds eating. Recently, we've noticed that at least 5 birds will feed at the same time. It's amazing to watch.
